We are a not-for-profit community Nursery. Our purpose is to protect and restore the ecological values of south-east Queensland habitats by returning locally indigenous plants to the landscape. 

We aim to achieve this through:

  • Growing, selling and promoting the use of indigenous plant species for every situation, from large-scale revegetation projects to home gardens
  • Encouraging community awareness and appreciation of the importance of native plants in the environment
  • Promoting the use of locally native plants in place of exotic species
  • Providing volunteering and educational opportunities for individuals to develop skills in identifying, selecting and growing native plants

We believe that habitat restoration is possible and necessary at all levels.  From rural to residential, the change and difference can be made literally in our own back yards.
